This is a truly amazing place to have your vacation! I had a pleasure to spend two wonderful weeks there and meet with all the staff and the managers. They always make sure that you are enjoying your stay and are open to any suggestions you may have! The entertainment team is incredible - the best I have ever met!!!... More

The food was tasty, the rooms were comfy, the beaches were gorgeous and the pools were clean. The entertainment staff and all the bartenders were incredible and did anything and everything to make...

Nice hotel, somewhat tired but undergoing renovation and we were offered a move to the refurbished rooms which was a nice touch. Staff friendly and always helpful, especially Raoul in the buffet room. Daily phone calls to check everything was okay. HOWEVER - from Friday to Monday, islanders use the hotel for long weekend breaks. Usually extended families mean that... More

The staff at the Gran Ventana resort is amazingly caring and dedicated. My experience with each staff member was nothing less than excellent. At breakfast Denny and Narsico in the main dining room gave us the best service. Every morning as they got to know us they'd bring the exact order of tea and sides without even a word of... More

To start with the trip from Santiago airport to the resort is 2.5 hours away. The roads are unfinished in spots which makes for a bumpy ride and makes you feel sick. As I found out on the way out of the country the trip we took in was a back roads way due to some "accidents" along Route 5... More

The Octopus restaurant, ordered a steak medium rare, it's yet to be beaten on taste and texture, rest of the food there also is very good. Ocean grill in the evening, another bad experience here, service poor, food not to high a standard. The italian, you need to be starving to go here, good food went there a few times

My husband and I booked our trip to Gran Ventana, from Sunday, June 22nd to Thursday, June 26th, for our 10th anniversary. Having two little girls under the age of 6, I was a nervous wreck about what we were going to find in our first all inclusive so far away from home. From the moment we entered the lobby,... More
